  1. I bet the real reason is that Emirates' pilots "are not provided the opportunity for meaningful leader development."
  2. Just a heads up, the new tax laws changed some rules on alimony deductions: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/under-trumps-tax-plan-divorces-are-about-to-get-a-lot-nastier-2017-11-03
  3. Fellas, anyone here gotten picked up by AA in the last year? Looking for some interview gouge.
  4. Reminds me when Larry got fatwa'ed: NSFW
  5. Duck, I'd release them now with your anticipated separation date; it doesn't hurt anything. If you find out you'll be getting out sooner, bump up your availability, like you said. Having them in the queue has no negative impact from what I've seen; it might even help, if there are items you need to correct on the app. Good luck.
  6. Thanks, man; I appreciate the insight. Exactly what I needed to know.
  7. SWA guys: If you're a lineholder looking to work a minimum number of days in a month, what would your schedule look like? How easy is it to drop trips? Could you get away with doing 3 three day trips?
  8. Before you sign the dotted line for your AD UPT slot, take the time to reach out to every single Guard/Reserve unit that you can. It would be worth waiting another 12-18 months to ensure you have autonomy over your life for the next decade. Additionally, you'd be able to keep the civilian job you have, take Mil leave, and then go back to it when you're done with your seasoning orders. The risk of foregoing your civilian career only to end up in a UAV should be a legitimate concern. Attenuate said risk by getting yourself a Guard/Reserve flying job. 90% of the paperwork battle has already been fought if you were awarded an AD position; capitalize on the AF's need for pilots and call your own shots.
  9. The VSP debacle is one of the less shocking things I've witnessed over the last several years.
  10. I'm glad to hear they have all the big issues ironed out before sending dudes down that path.
  11. A letter from the commander actually seems to carry some weight with the VA from what I've seen...It only needs to say something simple and to the effect of you'll be gainfully employed by the unit under Title 10 orders and that you've incurred a 10 year pilot training commitment, so you'll be around for a while.
  12. This happened a couple years ago, but a judge recently decided that the video could be made public. Link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Teqn_8tu5D4
  13. My buddy just got interviewed and hired by a Legacy without his ATP; he had the written done, but that was it.
